That might work.

What I did yesterday was to send a PR_COMMAND_GETPARAMETERS after the
"SUBSCRIBE" command. In the "case muscle::PR_RESULT_PARAMETERS" I process
the subscriptions I should have done and compares does with the msg( ):

muscle::String whatIShouldHaveSubscribedTo = ...;
if ( msg( )->FindBool( whatIShouldHaveSubscribedTo, &b ) == B_NO_ERROR )
  // Yes!
  // Hmmm...

But than I figured out that  - What should I do when I don't find the
whatIShouldHaveSubscribedTo string? (Or maybe I'll never reach that
situation?) Calling another PR_COMMAND_GETPARAMETERS would maybe result in
an infinite loop...(would it?). But I figured out that if my "SUBSCRIBE"
command was done before the first PR_COMMAND_GETPARAMETERS than in all cases
I've tried the subscription is valid when the PR_RESULT_PARAMETERS comes
back. First thing first... Is this behaviour guarateed by MUSCLE?

And when the subscription is valid I directly call the DAD client that I'm

It seems to work for me but I don't know if it's pretty.

Hehehe... well, how about this... after MOM creates her subscription as
described above,
she then posts her own data node called "mom=5Fis=5Flistening".  DAD will
have already
subscribed to "SUBSCRIBE:mom=5Fis=5Flistening", so that when MOM posts her
DAD will get notified of that fact, and so he will know it's now okay to
start posting
his data.

Will that work=3F
